Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars Recipe

Soft and chewy Snickerdoodle cookie recipes are always a fave with me–and this one for Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars is so good and easy!

The Snickerdoodle Cookie Bar dough is stickier to work with than your usual bar recipes. Greasing a spatula to make for easier spreading does the trick.

Baked in a 9 x 13 pan, these would be a unique offering to a potluck or pitch in. All I can say is “yum!” This recipe is the adapted version from Crepes of Wrath.
